Hand Truck Vignette

Hand Truck Vignette

Where oil stains, and molten metal burns left their mark: remain only the brazen character of worthy travail. An aged wooden hand truck proves a selfless testament of the hard work once endured. On the walk home from the steel mill, a man tip his hat to the paperboy, and says to himself "A noble line of work, though the boy doesn't yet have a family for whom he must provide."

Rapid industrialization and the successful thrust westward fostered a level ingenuity and proud American handiwork which can only be claimed by the American Gilded Age.

This particular truck is a midwestern classic which was originally manufactured by Nutting Truck Co. of Faribault, Minnesota.  Phenicie Restorations proudly continues its legacy, as we use it for photographing before & after pictures of restoration projects.
